Event Octet Stream The Software Libre en la Etica y la Practica Nov 06, 2007 from 09:30 AM to 11:30 AM Ensenada, Mexico, by Matt Lee
SALON DE CONVENCIONES DEL HOTEL SAN NICOLAS, A. Lopez Mateos y Guadalupe, Ensenada, Baja California 22800, Zona Turistica . Richard Stallman explicara como las patentes de software obstruyen el desarrollo de software. Las patentes de software son patentes que cubren las ideas del software. Ellas restringen el desarrollo del software, de modo que cada decisión del diseño trae el riesgo de conseguir ser demandado. Las patentes en otros campos restringen fábricas, pero las patentes del software restringen a cada usuario de computadora. La investigación económica demuestra que incluso retardan el progreso.
Event Octet Stream "Copyright vs. Community" and "Don't Even Think "Intellectual Property"" Oct 26, 2007 12:00 AM Nagoya, Japan, by Matt Lee
Location: Nagoya University, 8F Auditorium, Graduate School of International Development Bldg., Furo-cho, Chikusa-ku, Nagoya City, Aichi Prefecture, Japan. Copyright developed in the age of the printing press, and was designed to fit with the system of centralized copying imposed by the printing press. But the copyright system does not fit well with computer networks, and only draconian punishments can enforce it. The global corporations that profit from copyright are lobbying for draconian punishments, and to increase their copyright powers, while suppressing public access to technology. But if we seriously hope to serve the only legitimate purpose of copyright—to promote progress, for the benefit of the public—then we must make changes in the other direction. This speech will be accessible to all audiences and the public is encouraged to attend. Attendance is free, but feel free to e-mail info@feedforth.org if you plan to attend (with your name and affiliation, if possible) as this will help the organizers plan.

Liberating Web Services May 05, 2008 from 05:05 PM to 06:00 PM San Francisco, CA, by Matt Lee
Location: The Moscone Center, Howard Street, between 3rd and 4th Streets, San Francisco, CA http://www.moscone.com/attendees/directions/index.shtml. The last decade has witnessed a rise in the role of computing as a service, a massive increase in the use of web applications, the migration of personal computing tasks to data-centers, and the creation of new classes of service-based applications. These shifts have raised a host of important questions for the advocates of free software. For example, by separating use and distribution of software, these models have in some cases reduced the effectiveness of GNU GPL-style copyleft which treat modified web applications as if they were private software. Much more importantly, the movement of software off of personal computers has reconfigured power relationships between users and their software and complicated questions of ownership and control in ways that free software advocates do not yet know how to address. What does freedom mean for the users and developers of web services? What is at risk? What should the free software community, and the Free Software Foundation, do to ensure that software, and its users, stay free in this new technological environment? These questions and more will be discussed. The FSF is committed to protecting computer users' freedom, and always has been. Last year saw the release of the GNU AGPL, a license that requires service providers to provide the source for applications that users interact with over a network. While this is a helpful option for developers concerned about this use case, it doesn't guarantee users' freedom, and so the FSF plans to begin talking very directly about how web services affect us all. This summit will discuss the establishment of goals for a campaign to address the issue more comprehensively, and suggest some first steps for taking action.

Copyright vs. Comunidad Nov 17, 2008 from 06:00 PM to 08:00 PM Lima, Perú, by Matt Lee
Lima, Perú. Centro de Tecnologías de Información y Comunicaciones de la Universidad Nacional de Ingeniería. Av. Tupac Amaru 210 - Puerta 5 UNI, Rímac. El copyright fue desarrollado en los tiempos de la imprenta y fue diseñado para funcionar en un sistema centralizado de copia impuesto por la imprenta. Pero el sistema de copyright no funciona bien con las redes de computadoras y solamente castigos severos pueden hacerlos respetar. Las corporaciones globales que lucran del copyright estan presionando por castigos siempre más injustos, para incrementar su poder de copyright mientras restringen el acceso público a la tecnología. Pero si en realidad queremos servir al único proposito legitimo del copyright—para promover el progreso, al benefico del público—entonces necesitamos hacer cambios en la dirección contraria.

Brescia, Italy. Presso l'Accademi Adi Belle Arti, via D. Vender (+39 030 380894). Copyright developed in the age of the printing press, and was designed to fit with the system of centralized copying imposed by the printing press. But the copyright system does not fit well with computer networks, and only draconian punishments can enforce it. The global corporations that profit from copyright are lobbying for draconian punishments, and to increase their copyright powers, while suppressing public access to technology. But if we seriously hope to serve the only legitimate purpose of copyright--to promote progress, for the benefit of the public--then we must make changes in the other direction.

Advancing a Definition of Free Culture May 05, 2008 from 11:00 AM to 11:55 AM San Francisco, CA, by Matt Lee
Location: Location The Moscone Center Howard Street, between 3rd and 4th Streets, San Francisco, CA http://www.moscone.com/attendees/directions/index.shtml. This talk will introduce and describe the movement for free culture, access to knowledge, and open knowledge movements. These groups are frequently compared to the free and open source movements; both free software and free culture share a similar critique of intellectual property, a similar goal of access to information and a similar set of legal instruments (i.e., licenses) through which they attempt to achieve these goals. However, through its stronger emphasis on licenses and creator-centric messages, free culture and free software diverge in important ways as well. While the free knowledge movement, and Creative Commons in particular, calls for "some rights reserved," the FSD defined free software as software that respects the four essential and unreservable freedoms to use, modify, share, and collaborate without restrictions. This talk will describe the speaker's work on the Definition of Free Cultural Works aimed to provide both a definition and a goal: a Utopian vision of a world where culture is truly free and a set of standards by which we can judge our movement's success -- a vision of "essential rights are unreservable."
